Axle weight limits are restricted on certain streets in the City of Orono to protect these streets from damage when road and weather conditions warrant, in accordance with State and City regulations.
Most city streets will be posted and limited to 4 ton per axle weight limit. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead for moving or construction projects during the spring thaw season since weight restrictions will be enforced and large trucks will not be allowed on restricted streets.
No exemptions or permits are given during this time period, except for emergency vehicles and utility company service vehicles. For detailed information on exemptions please review theweight restriction resolution (PDF).
